My setup for working in RGB is a little different because of the fun with ink limits. Since my ink limits are set up with very little black, having a lineart layer with CMYK preview turned on means your lineart won't look black - it will look a little washed out.
I keep the lineart as a channel, with the channel preview (eyeball) turned on. Since the lineart is set up in a channel it isn't affected by CMYK preview and it looks solid black.
If you were to do this with a lineart layer, your color perception might be affected since it doesn't look solid black. You can see the difference below - with CMYK preview turned on, the lineart looks more like dark grey. Turn it off, and it looks black.
I only create a lineart layer near the end when I want to do color holds, as having the lineart in a channel means you can't see the color hold until you turn off the eyeball on the lineart channel.
When I convert to RGB, I run an action that does the lineart and trapping layers for me, with the proper CMYK colors.
